Sterling Publishers Pvt. Ltd, 2007 - Poetry - 425 pages
Though known as the ruler of the Moghul Empire during its time of decay and decline, Bahadur Shah Zafar and much of his court were poets of ample merit, as demonstrated by this compendium of Urdu masterpieces. Featuring the best ghazals and other works of Zafar and his contemporaries -- including Ghalib, Zauq, Momin, Shefta, and Azurda -- the anthology offers simple and appropriate English translations presented in eloquent rhymed verse, as well as transliterations of the original Urdu into the Roman script.
